I'm trying to figure out which IP addresses I need to block because of spam. I did a WhoIs search for one of the IPs that showed in my "Stats" and I'm not quite sure what to do.
The WhoIs query came back with the following:
[Redirected to whois.apnic.net]
% [whois.apnic.net node-1]
% Whois data copyright terms http://www.apnic.net/db/dbcopyright.html
inetnum: 22.214.171.124 - 126.96.36.199
descr: CHINANET FUJIAN PROVINCE NETWORK
descr: China Telecom
descr: No.31,jingrong street
descr: Beijing 100032
remarks: service provider
The IP in question is - 188.8.131.52. Now, would I want to block just 184.108.40.206? Or the entire range of 220.127.116.11 - 18.104.22.168?
I've been going through and just blocking single IPs of ones that look suspicious. But, if blocking the whole range would be the best way I'll start doing that.
Any info/reply on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
